Great app but still needs some features 4/5
Honestly I love twist but some basic things aren’t available here that other message apps have like being able to respond from the lock screen. Hope this improves!
Hyper organized team communication 5/5
Slack was always very stressful for me - our team is remote and I live on the West Coast of the US which means that I’d have hundreds of disorganized Slack messages piled up by the time I turned on my computer.
Twist keeps all our conversations organized and contextual so that I can log on without feeling the stress of having to sift through tons and tons of jumbled up messages.
Can’t recommend this app enough!
Calm communication 5/5
Twist is really a shift from all day running never ending chat message apps.
I love this app! 5/5
This app was SOOOOOOOO good that I just onboarded all of the leaders at my church, who were previously using text, email, Facebook messenger, etc. They are all very big fans of this sweet productivity app now too! Thanks, Doist!
Perfect for Church Plant 5/5
I recently planted a new church, and we use Twist to connect staff and volunteer team leaders. It’s perfect for ensuring all are on the same page without flooding inboxes!
For the first time since launch, there’s a share extension! 4/5
Thanks so much for figuring out how to implement it.
My only gripe is that it kind of goes against how Twist should work, since it creates new threads for each shared thing instead of allowing you to share with more granularity, by posting into specific threads.
For example, I share about 30 links or so every day and organize them by topic. Have an infinitely long amount of threads would not be ideal as a result.
Just registered 3/5
I registered using my Google account on the web version. IOS app still cannot get me signing up with Google. And When I tapped “Profile” the app crashes. Can I switch the English UI to another Language? I haven’t found how to do it...
Email is already in database but can't create new team 1/5
I would love this app if everything went well. Unfortunately, when signing up process, I was writing new name for team and suddenly the app crashed and when I repeat the process, I can't continue to create team since they told me that my email is already in database. So I can't delete my account nor use this app anymore. Bad UX flow.
I love this app & concept 4/5
I’ve used slack for several years, and been bothered by all the notifications and lack of focus on threaded (on topic) communication. I absolutely love the concept and implementation of this app! It is my go-to for teams now, and completely replaces the need for email in my book.
It feels in some ways like it is still in its infancy in supporting some features. Here’s an example: I love how I can share links to specific threads, but I don’t like how it takes users out of the app to the browser, rather than just redirecting them into that specific thread within the app.
That said, I will push teams that I’m involved in to move to this app, and any new teams I am involved in will use this if I can help it. I’m a student and growing app developer myself, and see a lot of value in organized, asynchronous communication. Thanks for taking the time to really think through fundamentals of communication and productive work before developing just another communication tool. This is not just another one, this is the only one I want to use.
Best solution for team communication 5/5
By tea spirit
Having tried Asana and Slack, I find that Twist is far better for my needs in communicating with my team. Developers are quick to address issues (THANK YOU!!!) and seem intent on improving it.
Smooth app 5/5
Great app. Easy to use, intuitive, clean and clutter free. Great customer support!
Love this app 5/5
Helps our team focus and have longer convos!
Streams of Consciousness Easy to Find! 5/5
This makes the whole mess of random thoughts and ideas related to projects way easier to find! Definitely beats any other app!
Teammates can't receive notifications 3/5
App is great but teammates aren't notified via the app of new postings.
Sounds good but... 3/5
By Bill in Wichita
Can't create or log on to google.
No way to make it work
I'm upgrading my original review above:
I will admit they respond quickly to a problem. I'm now logged in I still haven't had time to really use it so I am upping my score to three. I want some time to work with it.
Can't add a thread? 5/5
Update: Thanks to devs for response. It was a weird glitch where the "add thread" button disappeared. Restarting the app solved the problem.
I know the app is new but this seems like basic functionality. What gives?
Cannot register 1/5
Sign in or continue with google are the only options. Wonder what kind of testing this app go thru.
Great idea 5/5
By Almighty Ruler
This app is a great solution to a problem that's getting out of control. I've been trying it with my husband and we're both hoping our companies will make the switch so we can finally take a vacation guilt free and unconnected! Hopefully this app will begin to undo the 24/7 standard of employee availability that started with the invention of the Blackberry.
Can't sign up 1/5
No sign up option. Continue with Google or login are the only options. Since I don't have a login yet I chose continue with Google and it didn't work. Back to Slack. This seems too much like email anyway... but I guess I'll never know.
Great service... 3/5
But I can't add a thread from iPad!
I'm sure the app is great but could someone tell me how to register? All the app wants me to do is sign in. But I can't sign in if I'm not registered.
Twist App Support = Superb! 5/5
I had the opportunity to test Twist while it was in beta and the quick, enthusiast responses to my questions or trouble-shooting was nothing short of #Epic!
That alone lands 4 stars.
The 5th star is for the huge amount of effort and work I have seen Twist's development team undertake and also because the developer(s) listen(ed) and acted on feedback.
These are some of the cornerstones in great, 5-star+ apps.
So excited for you guys/gals! Can't wait to see Twist's future!
